Our client was on his motorcycle traveling on a main roadway when the defendant crossed over the double yellow line and struck our client while attempting to make a left turn in front of him. Upon impact, our client was ejected and forced across the road to the ground. The defendant was cited by authorities for causing the accident.
His injuries required multiple surgeries and included a traumatic brain injury, bleeding to the brain, numerous fractures to his nose, hand, legs, and hip, degloving injuries to his foot and heel, as well as a shoulder tear.
As a result of our client’s injuries, he was caused to suffer significant cognitive deficits due to the traumatic brain injury from the accident and is unlikely to make a full recovery over time.
We secured a $1.6 million settlement for our client’s severe injuries.
